Another great challenge was issued today over at Little Red Wagon! Avril has asked us to use fabric on our project! This was a bit of a challenge for me, but not in the way you might think. You see, I love this little fabric tree from Prima and I have had it in my stash for a little while. I have pulled it out several times but always put it back because I just couldn't part with it. If I used it, then it would be gone and I wouldn't have it in my stash anymore.
When I was digging through my stuff to find something for this challenge, I came across it again. I was excited at the idea of using it, but then I put it back in the package and tuck it away again. I rummaged around some more, but all I could think of was that perfect fabric tree. I pulled it out again and played around with some ideas, but never sticking it down so that I always had the option of putting it back in my drawer.
Once I had my card the way I wanted it, I finally decided that the tree had found a home. I even used the packaging as part of my background. Along with that I added some Prima lace trim that I stapled to my card using the Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher (love this little tool). I used my Cuttlebug to emboss the white background. I added a brown button from Jillibean Soup and stamped the sentiment using one of my sets from PTI!
I absolutely love how my card turned out and it is just perfect for Avril's fabric challenge. I won't be giving this one away. It will go into my card stash and remain there for a very long time!
